After repeatedly asking if he was serious and finding out that he was indeed, I found myself on my knees before the Father. I prayed asking God why he would tell this man to give me such an extravagant gift. God’s answer to me made me come undone. He spoke to my spirit saying, “Because I love you with an extravagant love.” Wow! The God of the universe not only loves us, but He loves us with an extravagant love! This painting is a picture of that love in my own life and he used a man I’d never met to show me His great love.
Alas, I met my facebook friend and had dinner with him and his girlfriend. It was such a blessing to meet them and I’m still overwhelmed by his generosity. I now have a beautiful portrait of God’s extravagant love hanging in my living room. Matt, I know that this painting will remind me of the Light in times of darkness. I can never thank you enough!!!
